Thirty-four phytosociological records were identified on non-calcareous soils within the area of sand and gravel pits located at the western part of Drawsko Lake District, Poland. The subassociation Spergulo morisonii-Corynephoretum canescentis typicum and the typical variant with Hypochoeris radicata were found on soils with strong acid reaction and loose and/or slightly loam sands. On the contrary, the Sedo maximi-Peucedanetum oreosolini association was found on the soil with the same texture but with weak acid or close to neutral reaction. These associations frequently occupy the warm slopes of excavations at the southern exposition and warm and dry adjacent areas. Results indicated that the sand and gravel excavation pits beside the midfield are very important habitats to phytocenoses with high biodiversity and stability.
